Period of Adjustment (1962)
The utters of Fonda and Hutton chanted high. Tony Franciosa kept the octaves low and his charisma forward. John McGiver sets and Mabel Albertson resists becoming the in-law stereotype. They glorified it. Lois Nettleton steals it because she could.
Marriage is deemed a terror, everyone screams their heads off until a surprise gift changes it. It has a loud message but you can still hear it.
Unfortunately, George Roy Hill's absurdity didn't allow Tennessee to be tragic. It's what the writer did best. 03-Jan-2019
Santa Claus (1959)
The mind sizzles with filmic ideas but it rejects the flipping from good to evil. It's a concoction for idle thinkers. 26-Dec-2018
Don't Sleep (2017)
The irony of the title is that it took me 6 tries to complete because it kept knocking me out. There's pretty boy enthusiasm in front of the camera but behind, they couldn't scare a bird. 11-Dec-2018
Uglier than Chucky and Annabelle and coalesced with contemporary American horror bites. The absurdity compels hilarity. 10-Dec-2018
Bad Teacher (2011)
So mean that it renders the characters inhuman. 07-Dec-2018
Fist Fight (2017)
Instead of expounding on the challenges of education they blast the ridiculousness of adult immaturity. The overload of stereotypes swats the funny. 23-Nov-2018
Foxy Brown (1974)
The material doesn't spark but a slice of home and a plenitude of attitude make up for the pinch. Grier is gorgeous disciplinarian. 16-Nov-2018
Trash art elevated by high energy, cliche improvements, professional visibility (actors,) Alexandre Aja (director) and Nicotero's (make-up) enthusiasm. 08-Oct-2018
The act is porny, the conversations are ear splitting but the elevator has a wicked sense of humor. 27-Sep-2018
Confessions of a Pop Performer (1975)
It's a constant pile-up you can't stop watching. 25-Sep-2018
Urban Legend (1998)
Some clever kills is what satiates the legend but the script has trouble lining up the backstories that go with them. 25-Sep-2018
It affirms its origin and endears us with embellishments. It debates life assumptions and Casper is illuminated with a thoughtful backstory. It's magic with gumption. 27-Aug-2018
House of Deadly Secrets (2017)
The horror is mute and the only person willing to entertain us is Patty McCormack. She's hilarious. 19-Aug-2018
Call Me By Your Name (2017)
Its insulting in its timing and the delusion that a teenager's "me too" is a right of passage. The disparity in size (Hammer's giant) and childlike looks (Timothee Chalamet) adds unseemliness to its presentation. Hammer distributes much awkwardness and little desire, maybe because he realized the discomfort of its subject.
Man/boy love is tricky if you don't account for its repercussions. It doesn't represent the gay community but it indicates that straits will stick it to anything and that uniting in sex will not absolve our confusion.
I'll call you what my first lover/daddy/asshole called himself..."bugarron." 07-Aug-2018
Muscle Beach Party (1964)
Its progressive in its use of men as sexual/gay bait, our parents consumed much energy in their youth and Frankie and Annette defined teenage charisma. It's unfortunate the ending piles so much silliness to appease short attention spans (parents) but it zips. 07-Aug-2018
